Fringe Femmes

WHO: Shelley Cooper

WHAT: I Wanna Fall In Love

WHERE: Asylum @ Stephanie Feury Studio Theatre 5636 Melrose Ave

WHY: Shelley returns to Fringe this year with the same level of talent she’s showcased before, but this time on a more intimate, personal level. With last year’s “La Divina”, she amazed us with her portrayal of Maria Callas, while this year we get to see her portray herself…and I’m so glad she did! She maintains the same composure as a performer while dissecting her voyage through searching for love. As someone in a similar age bracket who still hasn’t found “the one”, this show totally resonated with me. But I believe it will resonate with everyone, especially since she once again shares the amazing, angelic gift that is her singing voice. She also deftly uses pre-written songs to craft her narrative, something I had no clue about until talking to her afterward. I could watch Shelley perform just about anything (and will) and I suggest you do too!
